Your suffering is not your fault. You did not create your problems, dysfunction, or disease. You are only responding to circumstances at your given level of awareness. They were also responding to their charges at their given level of awareness.
Take it as far back as you need to go. Who is ultimately responsible? You may not believe it now, but suffering is actually what paves the road to the Divine. We never asked for any of it. We also inherit from our ancestry through the subconscious mind, including emotional charges.
She later married a guy named Smythe, who ironically or maybe not so ironically resembled her dad. Her mother had three kids, all girls. She had three kids, all boys. Listing the similarities between those two would take all day. For some, inherited ancestral traits can skip a generation.
I have an acquaintance whose grandfather was a bit of a bigwig powerbroker, married three times.
My acquaintance never met him and resented growing up in his shadow. His level of influence was born into him. The more he has accepted himself and his pedigree, the more his destiny of success has unfolded. We inherit traits from our families. And what does that mean? It means we also inherit suffering. Some of our suffering is caused by an unusual subconscious connection to our heritage.
Understanding this possibility opens the potential for subconscious healing to a whole new level. A young woman came to see me for recurring anxiety attacks that were happening at an accelerated and stronger rate. They exploded into her life whenever she crossed some ambiguous line of going from a romantic to a committed relationship. It had ruined several previous relationships. The attacks were becoming so frequent and so strong that she could barely function.
This was in the early days of my practice, back when I took more of an analytical approach to subconscious healing. Over the course of a few sessions, we probed into the events of her childhood and had some initial satisfactory success. However, the anxiety attacks still came back, albeit with less frequency and intensity. In conversation, I asked about her parents, and that led to the topic of their divorce.
The split happened rather abruptly, and it was rather grueling on her mother. Maybe she picked up emotional charges from her mom while she was pregnant. By the next session, her anxiety attacks gone… permanently. This creates internal conflict and puts us at odds with ourselves and our world, which is — you guessed it —a powerful subconscious emotional charge.
We go back generations. I need to beat to my own free-spirited drum. For me, becoming a lawyer would be a straight shot to hell.T.I. - Whatever You Like [Official Video]
Families can be blown apart by adherence to family conditioning, especially if it supersedes genuine needs. How many of us know someone who has gone into the family business and hated every minute of it? How many of us have been crushed by family disapproval over something we were genuinely passionate about?
If we are to grow and mature into the people we are meant to be in this life, we need to listen to the voice within. It may or may not be in accordance with family approval. Blind adherence to family conditioning, at the expense of yourself, can produce a lifetime of suffering. Because each of us projects the circumstances of emotional charges into our lives, many societal values are tainted with the spewing of these charges.
It can be a vicious cycle that propagates even more suffering. As we do, our values will shift. Ideals behind a societal system can easily be polluted into the perpetuation of things like needless war and excessive corporate greed. As each of us goes, so goes society. In order to transform our world, we must transform ourselves on the inside.
Emphasis will then be placed more on the quality of life and less on the trappings of the conscious and subconscious mind and unresolved emotion.
Talk about a runaway freight train. Most kids nowadays are more familiar with some flat, illuminated screen than members of their own extended families. The media tells us what to do, how to be, who to be with, where to spend our money, and that violence is acceptable.
And, boy, is it effective. When we watch TV, surf the web, or play on our phones, we go into a mild trance state.
This allows images, soundsand emotions to come right in and attach themselves to the framework of our belief system. It is creating and shaping our era.
Again, this is neither good nor bad. Past Lives A couple years ago I visited India, a country steeped in the belief of reincarnation.
You can always do it in your next life! Can suffering originate in a past life? However, entertaining the notion in subconscious healing provides some enormous benefits. It allows clients to step completely outside of the context and mental framework of their present-day lives and gain an entirely new perspective on their own suffering.
There was no logical explanation for the incredible pain he felt in his body. When he finally arrived at my door, he had been through numerous examinations and a treasure chest full of medications. Between his work with me and another local alternative health care professional, he was able to heal about 90 percent of the pain over the course of a year.
His biggest breakthrough came during a past-life regression session. The experience gave him the opportunity to completely reframe the context of his life. It was absolute freedom. Somehow, in the context of that liberty, he was able to free an enormous amount of physical pain. The connection between his stored subconscious emotion and physical pain was released. Trauma As previously mentioned, emotional charges can enter the subconscious mind before the critical faculty of the mind is formed in early childhood.
Charges can also enter when the critical faculty is let down. This can occur in times of shock and excessive trauma. Examples may include sudden physical injury, surgery, or receiving unexpected shocking news. The critical faculty relaxes, allowing negative emotional information into the subconscious mind. The Unknown Sometimes, understanding the cause of an emotional charge can powerfully accelerate subconscious healing.

However, every now and then, you can psychologize, analyze, and snoop around for sources of pain without ever finding the source. Ironically, we come into this life alone, and we go out alone.
We must also face every life transition by ourselves. Sooner or later, everyone gets kicked out of the nest. Imagine a young man whose father was not around when he was born. He was left unsupervised and alone all day. Two things happened when he matured into an adult. First, he developed incredible independence and resolve. He could take care of himself in any situation.
The subconscious emotional charges he carried from his youth produced absolute terror when he was left alone. He eventually became very successful in a business that required extensive travel. However, he had multiple lovers stashed in different cities, just like the food and money he used to hide in the woods.
He was never alone. Unworthiness, Rejection, and Insecurity—Lack of Love This one is a biggie because most of us get at least one helping of it. None of us get enough love. We enter this world completely dependent on someone else, physically and emotionally, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. It truly does take a village to raise a child. Add another kid or two into the mix and forget about it. We grow up competing for love and attention. Throwing some parental neglect and abuse on this ravenous need can produce some deeply seated emotional charges.
Unworthiness can be expressed in a variety of ways but tends to gravitate into two extremes: This is not only limited to jobs and careers; it can also spill into relationships. Examples may include the workaholic executive who is always vying for supervisor approval or someone who continues to sabotage seemingly healthy intimate relationships.
The underlying subconscious message is the same: The Broken Heart — Grieving Life is a never-ending parade of hanging on and letting go, letting go and hanging on.
In fact, to be happy, healthy, and well adjusted, we need to learn the art of letting go. At some point in life, we discover that being human means being brokenhearted. We love and become emotionally attached.
When we lose someone or something we love, it can be very painful, resulting in deep grief. It can be over anything: It arrives in waves over a period of time. It can take weeks, months, or even years.
The timeframe is different for everyone. They may include shock, denial, sadness, loneliness, depression, anger, and at some point hopefully, acceptance,a decision to move on, forgiveness, and peace. This can be due to lack of awareness or flat-out refusal to experience difficult emotions. In either case, the suppression of emotion will create an emotional charge in the subconscious mind.
There are times when life can be difficult. Grieving is one of them. In the framework of spiritual growthgrieving is not a time to shy away from the work that needs to done. Physical Illness — Cancer Subconscious emotional charges can be felt in the body. Perhaps you feel stress in your stomach, rage in your head, or sadness in your heart.
The charges need an outlet, a way to be experienced and released. When suppressed, they can find that outlet through the body in the form of illness, instead of just through life circumstance.
When someone is diagnosed with cancer or any serious physical illness, everything changes… immediately. Decisions on treatment must be made, family members need to be notified, finances become a concern, and questions of death come to the forefront. Priorities come sharply into focus. Emotions surface, sometimes powerfully. My job has been to assist patients through the subconscious emotional mine fields that come up during cancer treatment.
Some want healing, both emotionally and physically. Some want to connect to their God. There are those that I must prepare for death. Working with cancer patients has shown me the resilience and frailty of life. Survivors of a life-threatening illness will be forever changed. Whether they seek therapy or not, those who recover go through an enormous internal transformation.
With a massive amount of courage, they face their darkest demons. It concerns issues around unworthiness and lack of love, but at a whole new level. Some cancer patients have experienced a lack of love not only through circumstances, but also through actuality. The realization of that truth can be a very bitter pill to swallow. Many have a very positive attitude and a willingness to be involved in their recovery.
Some see cancer as the best thing that ever happened to them because it brings wonderful new people into their life. Others view it as a wake-up call, teaching them what is really important.
Many learn about healing, and some connect to the Divine. Can you see any repeating patterns? Are you aware of any emotion that has been repressed? The Curious Mind naturally cultivates a certain level of necessary detachment between you and the emotional charge. As you will experience, this creates a beneficial space between you and the emotion—a very helpful gap that enhances the release process.
Start with a clear-cut intention to heal a specific subconscious emotional charge completely. Sit or lie in a comfortable position and enter a deeply relaxed state. It may be rage in your head, heaviness in your heart, tension in your stomach, etc. It should come readily. If you get bombarded with mind chatter or distracting thoughts, just let them come and go, like watching clouds drifting by in the sky.
Next, simply pay attention to the charge as you experience it. I feel rage in my head. You may feel the emotion as it begins to spin or swirl and move out of your body. It may start to dissolve or let go. It may create interesting sensations in your body like tingling, warmth, or deep peace.
Subconscious emotional charge gone. If it returns, it will come back with less intensity and less frequency. If that happens, just go through the process again. You end up flailing and wallowing in unwanted emotion. It can be a very frustrating experience. This is our right lung and on the other side we have our left lung.
And all this would be inside of the rib cage, but I'm not going to draw that now, because that would make it harder to see the heart itself. So to think about exactly what the heart does, I think one, kind of neat way to do it is to actually imagine that you're a cell.
So put yourself in the perspective of a cell, and let's say you're a cell hanging out over here. And you can think about any part of the body that you could be. Let's say a little toe cell. So let's say you're a toe cell and your job, of course, is to live and be happy,and you've got near by, a little blood vessel. And in fact, every cell in our body has a little blood vessel that's near by.
The 13 Multi-Level Marketers You Meet in Hell
And this toe cell is just trying to make a living. And toe cells need certain things, right? They need, for example, let's say oxygen. I'll write it in white so it's very clear. They need oxygen and they need nutrients, right? So cells need certain things to live and be happy.
And on the flip-side, they also make waste. They're in a sense just like us, they make waste. And that waste could be all sorts of things, and one that kind of jumps to mind is carbon dioxide CO2. So carbon dioxide is waste for this cell. So it's making some waste and for the moment let's imagine that there's no blood flow. So, even though there's a blood vessel near by, really, no flow is happening, so I'll just write "no flow".
So as the little cell makes waste. That waste, let's draw a little ball right here, it's going to start accumulating, you're going to start collecting more and more of it since the blood is not really flowing. And it might kind of end up getting all the way around our toe cell.
So our toe cell is getting swamped, literally getting kind of covered by its own waste. And on the flip-side, is it getting oxygen or nutrients? It's not getting either of these things. So, before very long, I would say within minutes, our toe cell is thinking, "Well this is not a very happy way to live! And if this continues the toe cell would die. So, what a toe cell needs, and what every cell needs, and that could be a finger cell or a skin cell, or really any cell that's living, needs flow.
It needs this blood to be flowing nicely and smoothly. And if there is flow then you get a very different picture, right? If there's flow then all the sudden all the waste product is actually now lifted and taken away. It's flowing away, and it's a little bit like having someone come by and pick up the trash, then you don't have trash all over the house.
So then you have nice flow, and in return, oxygen and nutrients are delivered. So this stuff gets delivered as well.
Meet the heart!
So, all of the sudden the cell is going to be very, very happy, and is going to be living just fine. So, really if you want all of the cells in your body to be living just fine like this cell here, you really want good flow throughout the body. And so this is really point number one. Is that you really need, somehow, to have blood flow moving and pushing blood constantly through the body. So, to do this for billions and billions of cells you would need a pretty powerful pump, right?
Something that's going to be able to pull in all the blood from the body, and then push it back out. And that's what the heart is. I mean at its core, that's exactly what the heart is doing.
It's an amazing pump, pushing blood, so that you have good blood flow. And so I'm going to write that on the side as kind of job number one. These are the jobs of the heart. So jobs, and number one, would be blood flow. And I'll write systemic flow. And all that systemic means is that I'm refering to the entire body. So systemic when I say that word, I just mean the entire body.
All the cells in the body. Now, exactly how that happens actually you can see on this picture.
So, here you have a giant vein, this is a vein, and you have an artery. This is an artery.
